School Board Looks to Reduce Proposed Cuts to Non-Certified Staff

March 8, 2017 Schools No Comments

While the Board of Education on Tuesday reduced Superintendent Kevin D. Case’s budget proposal, it also looked to reduce the impact on non-certified staff members.

Earlier this year, Case introduced his budget proposal of $25, 629,086, which would have represented a 1.84 percent increase in spending. In that budget, Case said he had made the very difficult decision to reduce 12 Full-time equivalent non-certified staff positions  – ones that cover such positions as tutors and paraprofessionals.

On Tuesday, the Board of Education voted to pass along to the Board of Finance a proposal of $25,466,086, a 1.19 percent increase. The board found savings in line items such as professional development, custodial supplies, technology, a proposed .25 Capstone (senior projects) coordinator. However, the board added back in three non-certified staff positions.

Later this month, the Board of Finance, will begin looking at school and town government budgets. The finance board will be grappling with ways to deal with Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s proposal for drastic cuts in state aid.

The Board of Selectmen will be discussing the town side budget Wednesday night.
